Here is another interesting set of slides. The woman seen in “VW Bus” at a Tea Party of some sort. I’d guess that they are all military wives stationed in Japan, but maybe it was part of a Sister City Program? The woman on the right looks several years older in these old November 1968 pictures.
I can’t really tell what is being served there, but is that decoration in the middle a bride of some sort? Are we looking at a rather sedate bridal shower instead of just tea?
I really love the background in both these pictures. I can’t tell if it’s an traditional Japanese screen or something painted or printed on the wall. In the second picture you can see moulding along the floor that looks like Western construction so I have no clue where this would have been taken.
